About book Verliebt In Die Sterne (2014)

Avery Quinn has had an unorthodox upbringing for the offspring of the Marquise of Strand's gamekeeper. Educated far beyond expectations, Avery's sole ambition is to become a member of the Royal Astronomical Society; the only problem being the Society is male only, and Avery is a woman. Enter Giles, the extremely handsome son of the Marquise. Superbly paced, this is a terrific read for the romantic at heart. Ignore the awful cover. Connie Brockway's "No Place For a Dame"  What a trainwreck!  The heroine is supposed to be a brilliant and highly-educated amateur astronomer, and the hero is supposed to be a fabulous English nobleman with a sideline of spying/assassination. Trouble is, one never actually sees the heroine doing any science or even scientific reading - it's all "tell", not "show. The heroine has discovered a comet and wants to present her discovery to the "Royal Astrological Society".  But she can't do that as a female, so she finagles the hero into agreeing to introduce her to the Society in disguise as a young man. I should have figured out that things would go downhill from the point the word "Astrological" came into the story ... Anyway, once the heroine starts her adventures in cross-dressing, the book turns into a farce, sort of like the movie "Dumb and Dumber", but without the humor. I'm not sure which was worse - the heroine's misadventures as a boy or the spying/assassination plot, which made no sense whatsoever.  Don't waste your time with this one. For a far better romance where the heroine is an amateur astronomer in the Regency period, I can recommend Sheila Simonson's "Lady Elizabeth's Comet".

I got this through amazon prime free release and I liked it.

ending is abrupt. Everything seems to be too "neat."

Not terrible, but not particularly memorable.
